Motorola, Inc. finally launched the Motorola Ojo, a video phone resulting of its partnership with WorldGate Communications, announced in May 2004.
The Motorola Ojo Personal Videophone (Model PVP1000) transmits full-motion video with synchronized audio over a high-speed Internet connection. Motorola is showcasing Ojo during the International Consumer Electronics Show 2005 (CES) as part of its retail solutions for the Connected Home.
According to information released last year, the Ojo personal video phone uses an enhanced version of the H.264 digital compression standard and high-fidelity full duplex speakerphone technology. The 30 frames per second video can be transmitted at data rates as low as 110 Kbps ensuring that existing broadband infrastructures can easily handle high volumes of video phone traffic with no need for additional network equipment. The technology is based on interoperable standards, including DOCSIS, SIP and PacketCable.
